Description Andrew Cook 2015-08-20 19:18:32 EDT
Description of problem:
No lua support in wireshark

This is useful for quickly writing dissectors

spec is already set up to build with lua, though currently disabled
Comment 1 Andrew Cook 2015-08-20 19:27:10 EDT
Apparently fails to build:

  CC       lua_bitop.lo
./lua_bitop.c: In function 'barg':
./lua_bitop.c:85:2: error: #error "Unknown number type, check LUA_NUMBER_* in luaconf.h"
 #error "Unknown number type, check LUA_NUMBER_* in luaconf.h"
./lua_bitop.c:61:10: warning: variable 'bn' set but not used [-Wunused-but-set-variable]
   BitNum bn;
Makefile:690: recipe for target 'lua_bitop.lo' failed
Comment 2 Andrew Cook 2015-08-20 21:10:23 EDT
Might outright require lua 5.2

> Might outright require lua 5.2

Andrew we can't do it for now. If you have a working patch which allows building against Lua 5.3.x that would be really helpful. You may want to check patch attached in Bug #1230286.

Feel free to reopen if find something.

Disable bitop module

Got it to build by removing the bitop module, while fine for my use a proper solution would replace bitop.
5.3 adds bitwise operators which i assume are equivalent in all but syntax
